My name is Justin Hein and I am a 17 year old photographer from Boulder, Colorado. I have been fascinated with photography ever since I was very young. I was always asking to see any photos that my parents took of me, and I would always use my grandpa's camera whenever he had it with him. I enjoy just about any kind of photography from portraits to astrophotography.
In 2016, one of my photos was selected through a National Geographic program to be on display at Vice President Joe Biden's house. Since then, I have won multiple awards through small contests in Boulder and Telluride, and I have been selected to be a finalist in many others. In 2019, I was one of 30 finalists out of over 5,000 submissions in a National Geographic Expeditions contest. I hope to continue my passion with photography throughout my high school career as much as I can by leading a photography club. In the 2020-2021 school year, I will be Co-Editor-In-Chief of the Fairview High Lance Yearbook.
When I'm not behind a camera, I enjoy backpacking, hiking, skiing, and enjoying Colorado's beautiful outdoors. I play the upright bass and mandolin, and you might find me in a bee suit out tending beehives. If you have any questions about me or my work, please do not hesitate to contact me through the contact form, and I'll do my best to answer you as soon as possible!
